Richly Glazed Pork Chops Recipe

  • 6 center-cut pork loin chops, trimmed of fat
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 3 tablespoons black currant preserves or currant jelly
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Safeway SELECT Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 cup raspberry vinegar
  1. Sprinkle chops generously with pepper; set aside. In a 10- to 12-inch frying pan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add chops and cook, turning as needed, until well browned on both sides (8 to 10 minutes total).
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine preserves and mustard; spoon evenly over browned chops. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook until chops are still moist and look faintly pink to white in center; cut to test (8 to 10 minutes). With a slotted spoon, transfer chops to a warm platter and keep warm.
  3. Add vinegar to pan, increase heat to high, and cook, stirring, to loosen pan drippings. Boil sauce until reduced to about 1/4 cup (2 to 3 minutes). Spoon sauce over chops.
